EVENT DATE Nov 01, 2015
I am running the 2015 New York City Marathon for the benefit of the Athens College Schoolarship Fund (http://www.haef.gr/en/ScholarshipsFundDrive/Scholarship) in memory of my late brother Konstantinos G Tsakonas. Donations will be go the Fund and be awarded anonymously to students in need.
Athens College is a secondary education institution that is based in Athens, Greece and belongs to the Hellenic American Education Foundation (http://www.haef.gr/). Since 1925 the school it has been educating young Greeks from all parts of the Greek society either residing in Greece or in the diaspora.
The reason for its success in becoming the pre-eminent educational secondary instituion in the country is its Scholarship Fund. Each year the school gives scholarships to 50% of the student body. The school has instilled in me among others moral values, a world view, seeking excellence and the power of compassion.
